Inflatable Globes and Spelling
An article by July 23, 2008on
When we were packing things up at camp I happened to notice an interesting spelling on the inflatable globes. Apparently I had been spelling the Lone Star State’s name wrong my entire life. As it turns out, “Texas” is not the appropriate spelling at all.
The funniest thing to me is that they spelled every other thing correctly (that I caught anyway). That includes things like Uzbekistan, Tegucigalpa and Turkmenistan (though Turkmenistan looks like “Turkmbnistan” with the line cutting through the letter e). Nevertheless, I thought it was mildly amusing.
